I've been amazed at the relative lack of scrutiny that Bush has received over his imagined weapons of mass destruction. We've been debating the cost and death toll in Iraq, and how to get even with those beheading terrorists. But we've just skimmed over the fact that we're there on false pretenses.

That is, until now. I sense the winds of change, particularly since there is a growing debate within the Republican party. The normal bickering between parties is nothing newsworthy, but a schism within his own party gets people's attention. And hurts approval ratings.

The catalyst, of course, is the prison abuse scandal. Rumsfeld's involvement in altering acceptable methods of interrogation is still surfacing, but the black eye is already visible.

Bush's teflon coating is starting to peel. Maureen Dowd of the NYT summarizes the inconsistencies that are starting to receive public scrutiny.
